Kafka disco

How do we balance our need for others with our quest for freedom? Four performers open the poetic valves of breakdance, letting in softness, fluidity, and partnering work. The mutual aid and collaboration that emerge at first only turn into an alienating organization. In a Kafkaesque metamorphosis, the driving force of the group moves from symbiosis to a nest of vipers to cogs in the machine, a new entity reigning over its parts like a stern ruler, evoking a sea monster who carries individuals away to accomplish its own agenda: the Leviathan.

Some Review:

Jennifer Allen

"I love the oddness and unexpectedness of this, bringing in different movement styles: capoeira, club dance, improvisation. A dadaist relationship to natural organisms that creatively moves from natural to more urban/ formal landscapes. Diverse in so many good ways. It forefronts the strength of community".

Omri Drumlevich

"The film has whimsical ideas and a fun progression".
